Complacency is our enemy. Or is it apathy? Or someone else's problem?
It is going to be very difficult to maintain the sense of importance with what is going on when there are so many problems, we have heard so much about all of them that we feel we've heard it all before, and it is getting boring. Every thing seems to be just repetition, doesn't it?
We are now at the point where the President, and I'm afraid he is right, that if he repeats something often enough people will start believing it and by the end of the summer will consider it the gospel truth. Statements such as:
Gitmo is a recruiting tool for Al Quaida. Really? Prove it. Yes, I said, prove it and give us some evidence. When will the media start asking for proof? We need to be keeping a list so we don't forget that most of what he says is miles away from being factual.
Immigration: We have spoken before about the Catholic Church's attitude toward immigration in that they believe in fostering illegals. Now they are working really hard to be sure that all of them are counted in the upcoming census. That way they will cause a redistribution of representation in the Congress and the illegals will have representation at the expense of the rest of us. I really don't care if they count them for purposes of statistical accuracy, but representation really equates to non-representation for the rest of us.
One last thing tonight: You've probably already seen this, but just in case a few have missed it:
The Unholy and Anti-American Trifecta:
the first President in 110 years to miss the annual Army-Navy football game.
the first President who failed to attend any Christmas religious observance.
the first President to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.
the first President to not stay in Washington for Christmas for the last 20 years. Past Presidents didn't leave Washington for Christmas vacation until after Christmas. This was done so the staff (Secret Service, Air Force One Crew, Limousine transport, Presidential advancing logistics, etc.) could be with their families for Christmas.
Hos does that grab ya? Is it really all about him and Michelle? Or do others have any kind of importance in the grand scheme of things?
God help us-
